You can do this but wider hexes can do the same with narrower wheels

Default Ti Screws.

I want to run full Titanium hardware on my ZX-RS.
Ordered Ti hinge pins and turnbuckles from Lunsford Racing in the States.
Happy to order screws from them as well, but wondered if there was a European supplier who can beat them for price?
T-Works in Hong Kong seem reasonable too.

If running those screws snap but bound to be a few who do. Have you looked on ebay or Amazon?

Default ZXR ball diffs

Hi all, is it possible to build up ball diffs still? I've seen the pulleys, plates and rings at RW, Balls and thrust race should be easy enough,

it all comes down to the out drives there are other outdrives that ar right but have another number ,but they are also getting scarez.

i would do like this

buy new diff that requires 15*10 bearings then have them taken down the outdrives and fit 14*9 bearings since they are avaliable

otherwise use old diffs and machine them to RR diff specs, possible also but again an machenist is neaded

sorry for the bad spelling

Thank you, so when you say other diff for 15*10 bearing, are you thinking ZX5 or other?

nope ill guess that the optima rerelease diffs fit but have not measure them regarding the diffwasher , so thats why the guess.

well look at it like this way the diff/washer have to fit with in the pulley.
im 99,9 % certain they fit within the pulley but i have not tested them.

regarding the width of the diff im certain it fits since the optima mid diff is the same as the lazer diff.

The diff for the zx5 are way to wide but then again can be modified to fit if you are handy in the lathe

damn im kind of wanting to buy an rerelease diff now

I've looked into it and because the bearing is 14mm OD there isn't a bearing made 10mm ID, 14mm OD, the new optima gearbox moulding must of changed to take a 15mm bearing. Hopefully they re re the Mid and make a diff to suit or at least re make the hard to find parts. I managed to borrow a set of outdrives to copy so hopefully in the next week I'll be able to knock a few sets up.

yeah i know thats why i told you about the 14*9 bearings yeah since the modern use 15*10 bearings so if they make an re re mid they will use the same diffs ie 15*10 bearings, i would love kyosho if the rere the lazer it would be so fun

Buy the rere difs but you need to machine the washers to fit the diff gear, ive got the diffs and havent got around to finding someone to machine or grind them down. I think after that they should fit into the zxr
